NAME: Lee-Ann Forbes AGE: 21 PROFESSION: Model/Student FROM: St. James HOBBIES/INTERESTS: Watching football, cycling, playing billiards

How did it feel to be crowned Miss T&T World?

What is style to you?

My life has not changed much because I am still the same Lee-Ann and I still live the same normal life as the average young woman. The only difference would be I’m more occupied with training for the big day.

Style is how a person defines his or herself in society. It is a definition of individuality and personality.

How would you describe your personal style? My personal style varies depending on my mood, the occasion or event I am attending and the kind of crowd I am going to be in. I do not have a definite style but it reflects my personality in many ways.

How did you get your start in modeling? I actually did a modeling course, learning how to walk and pose then I attended castings and everything fell into place from there. I entered Fashion Week last year and did most of Island People’s promotions. I also did a lot of print work over the past year which has helped in my development in that aspect.

As a professional model, was it an easy transition into pageantry? It was not the easiest but it was not the most difficult transition I’ve had to make in my life. Being a model I usually just had to walk and that’s it and people could never understand why I was shy or had stage fright. But overcoming that fear, through my training, has developed me and made me stronger and more confident as a young woman in this world and as an ambassador to this country.

Words cannot describe the emotions I felt the night the crown was placed on my head.

How has your life changed since then?

Representing T&T at the Miss World is surely the biggest moment of your modeling career, how would you describe your feelings ahead of the London pageant? I am quite anxious now that I have a month before I leave. I am excited and anxious to go to London as well as to meet the other delegates and make new friends.

What did you do to prepare for Miss World 2011? I have trained very hard to reach where I am today and have focused on my weak points to make me stronger and be the best delegate I can be.

What’s next for Lee-Ann Forbes? After this competition I would finish my degree at the Academy of Tertiary Studies and continue my modeling career.

What mark would you like to leave on the world? I would want it to be a positive one and to be a great example and role model to not just young women but to everyone around the world. An example of hope that even an ugly duckling can grow into a beautiful swan and you can make your dreams true once you put your mind to it and put in the work needed.


“But overcoming that fear, through my training, has developed me and made me stronger and more confident as a young woman in this world and as an ambassador to this country.”

The Caribbean is well-known for exhibiting its culture through colourful expression, and for being a regional fashion powerhouse. Among a wide range of achievements, we have produced such international modelling stalwarts as Jaunel McKenzie, Selita Ebanks and Dominique Armorer. Created by Tyra Banks, the “Top Model” series is a fashion-themed Reality Television show distributed over several continents, and currently seen in over 120 adaptations globally. In 2011, we now have the privilege of introducing the search for the Caribbean’s Next Top Model. Under the supervision of a strong team of industry heads, the CaribeNTM franchise promises to celebrate the uniqueness of the Caribbean aesthetic, while adhering to international standards, trends and expectations. Moving forward, CaribeNTM hopes to continue this process by channelling our passion into viable opportunities for growth and development for the model & fashion indus-

try throughout 35 territories in the English, French and Dutch-speaking Caribbean, as well as the Dominican Republic. Miss Universe 1998, Wendy Fitzwilliam, will host and coexecutive produce the show, while judges will include such luminaries as fashion connoisseur Richard Young, and Australian photographer Pedro Virgil. Thus far, CaribeNTM has held casting calls in Barbados, Jamaica and, most recently, Trinidad. For Executive Producer Ian Royer, these castings are particularly important as they serve as the point of introduction for the girls, who will be exposed to regional and international experts in fashion. These professionals will help shape the models’ ideas and experiences and give real lessons on what it takes to have international appeal. Indeed, our regional Fashion Industry is poised and positioned for greatness with Caribbean Next Top Model on Top!

Born in Trinidad, and now residing in Brooklyn, New York, Samantha Thornhill is a traveling poet & writer. With poetry as her root, she started writing when she was a young girl, around age 11, and since then has gone on to craft a life surrounding ‘the word’. After leaving her homeland at the tender age of 8, Thornhill first returned to Trinidad twenty years later in 2007. Only recently, during a two-week visit, she made her first public appearance in Trinidad as a guest artiste at “The Forum” on August 14th. Thornhill has performed for audiences across the United States, and as far as South Africa and Hungary. “I have been so fortunate,” she comments, “because there are a lot of talented poets out there who do not get the travel opportunities that I’ve had. There’s nothing more validating than being asked to travel to a foreign country simply because of what you have to say and how you say it. I can’t afford these tickets to go to these places, so when I can travel on someone else’s dime and share my craft with people who wouldn’t see me otherwise, I give thanks for that.” One of her most memorable performances was at Prospect Park in Brooklyn. There, she headlined with David Rudder in front of a seven-thousand-person audience; the largest she has ever had. Thornhill dreaded the performance for months prior, fearing a tough Trini crowd that, in her words, “wasn’t going there to see me, they were going to see David Rudder!” Throwing her anxieties away, she braved the stage for a forty-minute set and received a partial standing ovation. “Quite a few people stood up,” she says proudly. “It actually went really well and I instantly became a better performer. It’s amazing that these poems that I write in the intimacy of my space can actually touch people.” Thornhill, who holds a Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in poetry, is not just a writer and performer; she is an educator as well. She teaches her craft to high school students, senior citizens, and first-year acting students at the Juilliard School. She also uses her writing as a form of education. In 2007, she published a children’s chapter book called “Everybody Hates School Presentations” based on the television show “Everybody Hates Chris”. Last year she published a picture book, consisting of an artist’s renditions of an ode she wrote to the late, great folk singer, Odetta. Having had more success in publishing for children, Thornhill is currently working on her first novel called “Seventeen Seasons”. The story revolves around a young girl on a quest to find her origins and her identity. It is set in Trinidad in 1990, the year of the coup, a time she finds particularly intriguing. Thornhill has started over writing the novel many times over the course of five years. She admits that this is the most difficult thing she has ever done. Despite the challenges, she finds a silver lining in the many coincidences that have worked in her favour. “What I find very interesting,” she continues, “is that I was here last year for the 20th anniversary of the coup and I saw the special that came out on television, there’s the inquiry going on, and now there’s the State of Emergency that sort of gives you an idea of what kind of stories you may have heard then.” “These trips (to Trinidad) have been very vital for me in reconnecting with home,” she adds. “The novel has actually driven my curiosity in different directions. It’s making me learn my island.”

TROPICAL GLAMOUR

The concept of tropical glamour has been bandied about since the earliest forays into high fashion by this region’s designers. The struggle has always been finding a trade off, one that doesn’t compromise either side of the divide. Janelle Angelique Forde, the latest in a long line of so inclined designers, has, since her first collection in of eight pieces in 2009, always been concerned with the concept. Her latest opus, a strong collection of 15 pieces addresses the question. So, what is Tropical Glamour? “The clothing embodies sophisticated style with a touch of Caribbean finesse.” Forde explains “I was inspired by the beauty of the relaxing lifestyle of the Caribbean. Each piece symbolizes this; whether it’s for the beach, a ‘small lime’ or dressing up for the most fashionable events. Tropical Glamour is the modern Caribbean woman.” “I am a proud Caribbean woman and I want the clothing and the brand to represent true Caribbean beauty. ‘Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder’ and I want J.Angelique Clothing to represent whatever a Caribbean woman defines as beautiful. I want the brand to also represent an empowered, environmentally conscious individual.” In 2010 Jinelle presented 10 pieces and is ready to unveil the new, which she intimates stays true to her aesthetic. “Last year the supporters were usually attracted to the bright colours and bold prints therefore I tried to highlight my design capabilities and fashion sense and incorporated more stylish clothing into this collection, while building on the same theme.” Three years ago, the story follows, Forde happened upon a hidden talent for sewing and garment construction. Her mother, who one gets the feeling is the quintessential supportive Caribbean parental unit, helped hone her raw ability into something that could hold its own going down a runway. And hold their own they did. Forde’s runway debut was at the University of the West Indies’ “An Enigma of Style 2009” which she participated in on the advice of a friend and, as the cliché follows, she’s enjoyed a meteoric rise from then on.

“I have grown in the process as I now appreciate the cut and quality of clothing and fabrics and incorporate them into my work,” Forde offers, and her latest collection, which we’ve been talking about since earlier this year, is a good example. As well as having improved construction, her clothes offer Forde the opportunity to express herself. It is one she accepts willingly. Her experimentation with contrast and texture speak volumes of her ability to keep getting better with each collection. And in the case of one particular piece, her ability to create daring garments without bordering on vulgar will cause many happy blushes in the years to come. The collection was an almost guaranteed hit at this year’s Trinidad and Tobago Fashion Week, but unfortunately the local showcase of established and young designers was buried after a long, agonizing death. Despite the ravages of disorganization and sundry other issues that caused TTFW 2011 to cease to exist, Forde sees past rain clouds. “It is very unfortunate but I do not think it is something one cannot recover from. TTFW ought to be aware” she insists “that they have the responsibility to showcase and assist Trinidad and Tobago’s finest and upcoming designers. Once this is the guiding principle and the organisers are able to rally support, a spectacular production may be presented next year and for many years thereafter.” All well and good but on the ground things may not be as simple. In an effort to help simplify things somewhat the Barbadian suggests an enhancing of fashion’s disposition in the region backed by policy and growth stimulating initiatives ‘to create a commercially viable local industry.’ Just 22, Forde, coolly confident in her prowess as a designer, holds great prom-

ise. This quality coupled with her vision of the fashion industry ‘as a viable entity for economic prosperity in the Caribbean,’ may be what sets her apart from her peers. Forde’s newest collection was launched on Saturday at Levels Ultrabar and Lounge and thereafter can be found thereafter at William Duds, which she describes ‘as a local store that supports young, talented designers. The team has great aspirations for the local talent of Trinidad and Tobago and I am proud to associate with them.’ Ed’s note: Shameless plug.

Life

Reel Talk The Sixth Edition of the Trinidad and Tobago Film Festival raised curtains on Wednesday September 21, providing a valuable showcase for aspiring filmmakers. “It represents hope. A lot of people don’t know about this industry because it’s so new,” noted Nadissa Haynes, a final year film studies major at University of the West Indies, St. Augustine campus. Haynes directed Pashan of the Froot, a spoof of the life of an aspiring entertainer. The 21-minute sketch was used to open the festival. The short’s inclusion came as a pleasant surprise for Haynes, who originally did the project as a school assignment. “I never thought of entering it, but the directors of the festival saw it and said they wanted it to be a part of the festival,” said Haynes, whose lingering affection for cinematography survived her nine-year engagement with a corporate job. The festival has become a major lane for individuals who hold interest in bringing their stories to life via the reels. But prior to the Festival launch five years ago, filmmakers carried an extra burden in attempting to promote their work. “I used to do documentaries before and back then

14 • WE STYLE • October 2011 • westylemagazine.com

I had to go put together my own private screenings. That’s a different set of costs with marketing. They gave me an avenue to exhibit my work,” said Christopher Anthony Din Chong, the only Trinidadian director to have a full feature length fictional film at the festival. His offering is 3 Line, a found footage suspense thriller not dissimilar to Hollywood films such as Cloverfield and The Blair Witch Project; save the fact that it incorporates local folklore and scenery. “I want to see what the audience thinks, if they jump at the right point,” said Din Chong, who was also pleased that the festival encourages directors from various countries to interact, share ideas and even collaborate. And there’s no shortage of cultural exchange available either as entries from Barbados, Antigua, Jamaica, the Bahamas, Martinique, Aruba, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Venezuela, Brazil, Colombia and Mexico are all featured. Another director featured at the festival, Mandisa Pantin, is also excited at the options the Festival opened up. “You’re sort of encouraged to do it internationally. You start to want to do it better,” said Pantin who recently completed a double major of production and film stud-

Dominic Christopher ies at UWI. In additional to screening films, the festival also features several workshops, conferences and feedback sessions. “Caribbean film making is important; we need more Caribbean film makers and more Caribbean films. We need to strengthen the Caribbean film culture.” said Francisco Pardo of Aruba. Pardo directed the film Ave Maria, a film, which follows a lonely man’s pursuit of happiness. Venues for the film screenings this year include MovieTowne Port of Spain, the Little Carib Theatre, Studiofilmclub and UWI, and other locations across both islands. Screenings at all venues are free with the exception of MovieTowne and Little Carib Theatre where a $25 fee was required. The announcement of the State of Emergency slightly dampened the event, with scheduling forcing one film to be dropped entirely. But with the curfew in effect, film organizers used shrewd marketing by holding Curfew Cinema Friday, which offer a film for download over every weekend.

ccessories, according to the dictionary, can be defined as “an article or set of articles of dress, as gloves, earrings, or a scarf, that adds completeness, convenience, attractiveness, etc., to one’s basic outfit.” Today, the average woman, never mind the fashionobsessed dresser, looks to accessories as the ‘make-orbreak’ of an outfit or the ‘icing on the cake’. A look is almost naked without any ‘accessorizing’. One is easily able to create a unique expression because of particular fashion accessories…and they don’t always cost a fortune. Fashion jewelry makes up a huge chunk of the multibillion dollar fashion industry. One is easily able to create a unique expression because of particular fashion accessories, which don’t always cost a fortune. Fashion jewelry makes up a huge chunk of the multibillion-dollar fashion industry. Over the centuries fashion accessories have changed and evolved. In the 19th century, English fashion accessories included items such as the Muff, the Tippet, and Tulle shawls. The beginning of the 20th century saw radical changes in the way women began to dress. In the 1950s, fashion accessories became popular in the western world; with accessories such as fruit corsages to adorn sweaters or hats. Eyewear and the stiletto heel also became staples. It’s safe to say that things exploded and became mainstream with the likes of Madonna and her ‘material-girl era’ and several other fashion icons of this time. There’s no looking back as everything from historical to futuristic has become wearable art. I’ve sought out some stand-out statement pieces that’ll up the ante on any look, from jeans and a tee, to a Gala gown…Enjoy!

Revlon and Local Designers

‘THINK PINK’ for Breast Cancer Awareness For the first time in Trinidad and Tobago, Revlon Cosmetics is launching a campaign to raise funds for breast cancer and is asking consumers to Think Pink and show their support. This follows in the footsteps of Revlon International who have been ardent in their campaign for breast cancer awareness through their Revlon Run/Walk, which is held annually in New York City and which is attended by over 40,000 participants including Revlon Brand Ambassadors such as Halle Berry, Jessica Alba and Jessica Biel. For the local campaign, which has the full support of the Trinidad and Tobago Cancer Society, Revlon created the slogan ‘Think Pink’ inspired by the well-known breast cancer pink ribbon logo. The slogan has been imprinted in crystals on the front of women’s t-shirts together with the breast cancer ribbon logo. The Revlon logo and slogan ‘Support the Cause’ are printed at the back. Revlon Product Manager, Marie Iles explained, ‘We wanted to modernise the message and create a fun, attractive, fashion item that our consumers could enjoy wearing while showing their support for breast cancer and raising awareness in others’. The limited edition Baby T’s will be available in October with the purchase of $125.00 or more in Revlon cosmetic products from selected stores including SuperPharm, Kappa, Ali’s, Pennywise, Glendales, Bel Air Stores, Body Perfection, Medicine Plus and Pharmacy World. For every Think Pink t-shirt given away Revlon will donate $5.00 to the Trinidad and Tobago Cancer Society. As an added twist to the campaign Revlon asked three local designers- Meiling, Peter Elias, Designer Look- and Photographer, Calvin French to create their own interpretation of the Think Pink t-shirts by adding something extra that would brand them as their own. Revlon also engaged the support of local personalities: model and actress, Teri Leigh Bovell, Carnival costume designer and make up artist, Sandra Hordatt, Carnival costume designer and Tribe band leader, Monique Nobrega and Radio and TV personality and professional make up artist, Leasel Rovedas, who agreed to wear the designers’ creations for a photo shoot to promote awareness of the campaign. The Designer t-shirts will be available for purchase in October at the designers’ outlets only, at a cost of $150.00 with a minimum of $50.00 from the sale of each t-shirt to be donated to the Trinidad and Tobago Cancer Society. The Designers have outlets at the following locations: Meiling- Carlos St, Woodbrook, Peter Elias- Ellerslie Plaza and The Falls of WestMall and Designer Look- Lower Level, Gulf City Mall A select few of the Designer T-shirts will be available free to customers purchasing $175.00 or more in Revlon cosmetic products from Starlite Drugs at Starlite Shopping Plaza. The money raised will help support the ongoing work of the T&T Cancer Society, which includes raising awareness, provision of counseling, breast cancer care and therapy, support clinics and hospices.
